I don't know what to say. Feeling some update fatigue. Can I just learn the game?

Until August is only some months.
I really enjoy this game, but get tired of the constant rule changes. It makes me feel like I should just hang it up and play another game for a couple years until it settles.
I can only speak for myself, but I enjoyed to pace that WHFB used to move at, where I had time to collect and paint a few units a year. Now it seems like it's on steroid and things change after getting to play 5-10 games..
@yrtomin @Eru Yes, this was a knee-jerk response.
No, I didn't see the news because I only came on the site to grab the rules for a game we were about to play.
No, I don't usually look at the news because it seems it's mostly just BlondBeer or SkaveninAZ or someone's battle reports or some such (as opposed to news about the game), and considering the window size I use for browsing forums the news tab is rarely even on my screen (and I have mentioned this in the Website Help forum, and think it should be the default home tab..and I do see it there now).
I'm sure the staffers here are very committed and probably play often and seriously, (and thank you for that committment). I'm sure there are people like me as well, who manage to find some time to play once or twice a month (or not at all), and don't spend all their time reading the forums (though I try to when I have some time).
I'm painfully aware that I've become a whingeing moaner, the type I used to disdain over the first year of the project, but it seems I'm running out of patience, though I generally consider myself a pretty patient guy.
I just wanted to voice my concern on this issue, as it's turning me off the game. I'm finding myself more interested in 9th Heim or Mordheim these days as each time I want to play T9A it takes so much time to review the rules and try to get a handle on what my and my opponents lists are capable of, and then so much time to play a game because we have to keep checking rules as I can't remember off the top of my head which edition the rules I remember came from... Just feeling tired of it all... then feeling sad and angry about not wanting to play my old favourite game
The "old" game is gone forever man if you liked stay play with 8th(or chess these rules never change
In bigger picture to have some close to perfect rules you have to improve them right?
I'm still waiting for this game to reach next level ..
Isnt this exactly what you wanted? Game isnt getting updated until somewhere around autumn for 2.0.
All changes you see now are just layout changes, dont you read the changelog?
*grabs the popcorn*
@Darkvoice has a point and it's turning away alot of prospective new players due to the constant changes. Unfortunately this game won't be able to be sustained just by veterans alone. You need new blood and these changes ain't helping.....it's actually hurting itself more and more each time there is a "new" rules update as this game requires long term investment (i.e 1 year+) in order to play it and no new players are going to invest into something that constantly changes regardless if it's for good or bad. Whilst GW did release broken rules at least it was stable i.e 5 years + and people can be invested into it.
But I'm just here to read the smack-tal
So I suggest you play with 1.3, ignore 2.0 when it hits (it shouldn't be out for too long), and then learn 2.1 as the last version of T9A you'll need to learn for 4+ years
